Tour Highlights


Historically, Almannagjá was a campsite for the people of the Parliament (Alþingi) every summer. Hence the name meaning Everyman's Gorge. Through it runs the Öxará river, cascading down a waterfall forming the infamous Drekkingarhylur, where adulterous women were thrown into the abyss to drown.


Þingvallavatn is the largest natural lake in Iceland, lies perched on the rift valley separating the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. Most of it is in Þingvellir. The Silfra fissure pumps glacial water, filtered through the surrounding lava , into the lake, where the mineral rich fluid fertilises a variety of vegetation.


Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. It is a National Park since 1930 and a UNESCO world heritage site, hosting the old Þingvellir parliament. It lies in a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

"So good!"

We went on two tours with Reykjavík Sightseeing - The Golden Circle and South Coast - and everything was amazing! Very professional and sweet guides, great selection of tours, easy pick-up options and beautiful scenery (of course). Would definitely recommend!

"Northern Lights"

Elizabeth and the bus driver who’s name I did not catch were amazing tour guides. They were both very personable and made a great team. Elizabeth has such an outgoing personality and was able to make the trip super exciting, even though seeing the lights was not a guarantee. We were about to call it a night when the lights came out to give us a beautiful show.

"Great tour, great tour company"

We took the Golden Circle plus Secret Lagoon tour, it was the perfect day trip and Alex our tour guide was fantastic. Learnt a lot about what we were seeing but also lots of other nuggets about Iceland. They even made a few unscheduled extra stops to show us other sights and to let us get out and take photos of the incredible sunrise.
